In March 2017, Oxfordshire Science Festival asked young people to write a short poem on any topic of science, using any style. We had over 400 entries from across Oxfordshire ranging from limericks and rap to haiku, acrostic poems and poems based on a shape.
The winning entries and runners-up are all published in the Poetry of Science anthology. These nine poems were performed at the Oxfordshire Science Festival in Oxford Town Hall on Saturday 17 June 2017. The word cloud on the cover of this anthology represents thousands of inspired words from pupils across Oxfordshire.
Look out for the competition in 2018....
